Sure, Utah isn’t like New York or California with their big cities and bright lights, but it will still take your breath away with its natural scenery and national parks. Here are 3 reasons why you should visit the Beehive State, Utah, on your next vacation:
The Mighty 5
Utah is known for its national parks. With the Mighty 5 tour, you can visit as many of these tourist attractions as you want. All you have to do is choose among these itineraries: Rivers & Redrock (three days—Las Vegas to Zion to Bryce Canyon), Slickrock Adventure (three days—Salt Lake City to Arches and Canyonlands), History & Hoodoos (five days—Las Vegas to Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Arches and Canyon lands), The Best Week of Your Life or the Ultimate Journey (seven days or ten days—both to Salt Lake City to Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon and Zion). These itineraries will take you to an unforgettable adventure through the state’s most beautiful sights.
Salt Lake City
Are you a fan of the Broadway musical The Book of Mormon? If yes, you might want to visit Utah’s capital, Salt Lake City, and see for yourself what the fuss is about. You can go to the Temple Square, a beautiful 10-acre plaza where you’ll find The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You can also go to the Church History Museum to learn more about the Mormons’ past and origin, or stop by the Beehive House, where Brigham Young lived during his time as the leader of the Mormon Church. If you’re not a fan of Elders Price and Cunningham, that’s not a problem. Salt Lake City has a lot to offer for nature-lovers. Go to the Antelope Island State Park, Red Butte Garden and Arboretum, and the Hogle Zoo. Meanwhile, for a taste of Utah’s culture and arts, why not visit the city’s museums? The Leonardo, Discovery Gateway (for kids), the Pioneer Memorial Museum, and the Utah Museum of Fine Arts are great places to visit.
If you’re a film enthusiast, you know what happens every year in Park City. The Sundance Film Festival is a world-renowned event for both filmmakers and fans. It has given the stage, or rather the screen, to cult classics and masterpieces such as The Blair Witch Project (1999), Donnie Darko (2001), Napoleon Dynamite (2004), Little Miss Sunshine (2006) and Blue Valentine (2010). If you want to be a part of movie history, this is the place to be. However, you can also visit Park City for its beautiful mountain views. Why not go skiing at Deer Valley or Park City Mountain Resort? The Utah Olympic Park, the sports venue that was built for the 2002 Olympics, is also here.
The Beehive State is a perfect destination for outdoorsy people who love to hike, camp, or ski. But it’s also a wonderful place to visit for those who have interests in culture and the arts. If you’re both of these people, a trip to Utah is definitely a great idea.
